Hillary Pledges to Make the World Safe for Kids Like Trayvon Martin
Hillary Clinton would sell out her own daughter to ensure her seat in the Oval Office, but don’t think other women’s children aren’t good enough for her to use.
“When I think about keeping Americans safe, obviously I think about terrorism,” Clinton shared with her supporters at a rally in Sanford, FL on Tuesday. “But I also want to protect Americans from the epidemic of gun violence that is stalking our country.”
After attempting to highlight her political achievements as Secretary of State, Clinton went on to let the crowd know that if elected, she’ll do everything she can to make America safer for sweet, innocent kids like Trayvon Martin.
“I cannot come to Sanford without talking about Trayvon Martin,” she lamented. “It’s heartbreaking that this young man all he did was go to a cornerstone, bought a pack of Skittles and walked back home in the rain. And his life was cut short.”
In February 2012, Martin was shot and killed after he attacked neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman. The media largely buried the fact that at the time of his death, Martin had been suspended two times that school year – once after he was caught with a burglary tool along with a dozen items of female jewelry and a second time after getting caught with marijuana and a marijuana pipe. Offenses that could have gotten Martin arrested. Following a highly publicized trial, Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder in 2013.
Hillary also used the “33,000 people a year die from guns” statistic to browbeat the crowd into doing “a better job”.
“You see, I believe we have a fundamental human — even a moral obligation — to protect our children no matter who they are or what zip code they live in. We have a moral obligation to reduce gun violence and that will require us to stand up against systemic racism and promote justice and equality and criminal justice reform.”
The funny thing is, I agree with her. I absolutely agree that we have a fundamental human right and moral obligation to protect our children – that’s why I carry.
Clinton went on to speak out of both sides of her mouth, trying to convince the crowd there is “no conflict between the Second Amendment and common sense gun safety measures” before boldly declaring that with their help and “the help of responsible gun owners”, she will stand up to the gun lobby and “save lives”.
Since “the gun lobby” is comprised of responsible gun owners, I’m not thinking she’s going to get a whole ton of support there.
